    Style :
    In his paintings, the male nude form has fascinated him and has dominated his canvas, he uses this form as a vehicle to express strength and tension. Simple, strong and bold lines create forms infused with colour that are vivacious and very real. The artist tends to draw his male forms in the classical realistic style but this is where the commonality ends. The artist manipulates the image to suit his own convenience. The female form also appears occasionally in Sarkar’s work, but almost always sharing the frame with a male counterpart.
    Although the artist prefers oils as his chosen media, he also works with charcoal and a combination of both. Influenced by his experiences with printmaking, Sarkar often adapts the etching look on the surface with the use of charcoal. The artist’s recent works show a lot of experimentation in terms of technique and representation. Progressing with the times, he has used computer generated images in his recent works to create a more vivid representation of the subjects chosen.
